Perfect vacation home to explore the Dordogne
First, let's start with our landlords- Xanthe and Hamish were perfect hosts. From the time we booked throughout our three week stay they were responsive to our questions and needs. Thank you! The house was more than we could have imagined when we booked online. The kitchen meets all the needs that Americans would be looking for: washing machine, dishwasher, large refrigerator and good stove top and oven. There were plenty of dishes, etc. The three bedrooms and bathrooms are comfortable and easy to settle in (even though a little more storage for the first floor bedrooms would be nice). With three adult couples, we managed shower times and hot water was not a problem. The living room/dining was comfortable for six people and we enjoyed the fireplace on chilly evenings. The weather allowed us to sit by the pool (not in!) and enjoy the sun and patio. There was plenty of privacy with parking for 3 cars easily. The house is on a quiet street and an easy walk to the medieval village of Sarlat. We highly recommend this house for a short stay or a longer vacation as a base to explore SW France. We will be back!

Ideal holiday location

Delightful house with three en-suite bedroom that is ideally located for exploring the whole of the Dordogne. It is at the top of the main shopping street in Sarlat with easy walking to all the shops, restaurants and attractions in Sarlat.
Good location as all areas can be access by car without driving through the town centre, which can be busy on market days.
Truly a great place to stay.

Wonderful place to stay in Sarlat la Caneda

The house suited our family of 4 perfectly. The owner (Xanthe) had the slow combustion wood heater going so it was toasty worm when we arrived. He was an excellent communicator in the booking phase and lead up to our stay. The free Wifi kept our two teenage sons happy when we were not out taking in the many sightseeing opportunities in and around Sarlat. The house itself has been refurbished and was clean, comfortable and had all that you need in terms of equipment and appliances. It is in a very quiet location, being set well back from the quiet street, but yet is only a 5 minute walk into the centre of town. Xanthe ensured our security bond was returned promptly. I cannot recommend this house too highly. A great place to stay!!!

Fantastic Location on Sarlat
We have stayed in this house for 6 weeks over the last two years and we will return again. Everything is as advertised and the reviews on this site are correct. The location, a 5 minute walk into the Medieval Centre, is the best thing about this house. There is great shopping just a couple of minutes away - a great bakery, cheese shop, and Supermarket. International newspapers are available at Newsagent just minutes away too. The Master Suite upstairs is comfortable and very roomy, with windows on both sides giving a breeze on hot nights. The double bedroom downstairs is comfortable, faces the garden and has a ensuite shower room. The third bedroom adjacent to the kitchen has 2 single beds and a small shower room, with the toilet off the kitchen, so its not ensuite - to me this bedroom is suitable for a single adult or children. The garden is sunny and private, and there is car parking for 3 cars. The pool is in a sunny position and is maintained weekly. Hamish and Xanthe, the owners, live locally and will attend to any issues that arise promptly. The house is in a quiet position, so a good nights sleep is assured.

Perfect retreat and so close to the centre!

We arrived in the evening and found that everything was prepared for us, a fire in the fireplace, the pool ready. All the promises of the photos and the details proved corrrect and even better in reality. The rooms were wonderful, very stylish and cosy. Everything was clean and well maintained. The fully equipped kitchen enabled us to prepare the most gorgeous meals with everything bought fresh on the market or brought home from our excursions around the Dordogne valley.
Private parking, very precious in central Sarlat, several excellent restaurants in walking distance, shops close at hand made our life very easy and restful.
The area is fabulous, one feels in the South, people are very open and friendly and the sun plentiful. On our trips around we discovered the most impressive cave paintings, wonderful little villages, dramatic castles on steep slopes, all in the colours of the river, the ochre of the hills and so many different shades of green.
Xanthe and Hamish were always in the background to help should any problems arise. Everything went so well, that we are already planning our next stay in the house.

Location, comfort, quality - perfect!

We did a lot of research on the internet trying to find the right place, and were sold on the photos and information provided by the owner. Xanthe was very helpful answering our questions and the booking process went very smoothly.
The house is very comfortable - there aren't that many properties in the Dordogne which are suitable to stay in during the cold(ish) winter months, or are even open. But this house was everything we were looking for. It has a large private garden at the front, giving the house lots of privacy, off-street parking, a wood-burner in the living room. The main bedroom was very spacious.
The house is in the centre of Sarlat, very easy to get to, even on market day.
We received our deposit back the day after we left the property. In fact all of our contact with the owner was great, we'll definitely stay in one of her properties again.

Comfortable and convenient 3 bedroom house.
We have thoroughly enjoyed our stay here in Sarlat!
We were 6 Aussies visiting for 7 days and the house was ideal for 3 separate couples. Each couple had their own very comfortable bedroom and bathroom and the living area was large enough for us to have our own space. We had some lovely lunches on the front verandah, looking out into the lovely garden.
Great location for all our needs, with a patisserie and restaurants within easy walking distance. So quiet and peaceful at night.
Our hosts provided all the information we needed to get to the property by car or public transport and greeted us on arrival. The property is well maintained, clean and comfortable.
Xanthe recommended a great driver who organised a fantastic couple of days touring the Dordogne area for the 6 of us...............an affordable and friendly guide.
Enjoy your stay!'

Perfect Location!

We've had a wonderfrul short visit to Sarlat.
The Rue des Cordeliers house is the Perfect location.
Thank you Xanthe and Hamish for your hospitality.
The house is the perfect base of operation for exploring the Dordogne. We were fortunate to be here for the Wednesday market, then enjoyed touring to La Roque Gageac, Beynac and Rocamadour.
We would love to return!

Lovely house in a great location
I just wanted to say thank you so much for enabling us to spend a wonderful week in Sarlat. I especially appreciated all the help that you gave me to organise our trip and we found that this house suited our needs perfectly with everything that our mixed age range required. To be able to stay in a lovely old house in the centre of such a beautiful town as Sarlat was a real treat. We couldn’t fault the house or the information provided by Xanthe in anyway and the restaurant recommendations were spot on. I will be passing on the details of this place to our friends and family.
